5 Ways to Be Efficiently Creative
5 Things to Ponder This Weekend

Indecision is the Enemy of Spontaneity

Some thoughts, and perhaps thought changers, on one my least favorite places to be: Indecision.

  • Indecision is the enemy of spontaneity.
  • Indecision is the enemy of the artist.
  • Indecision is the downfall of the parent.
  • Indecision is the downfall of fruition.
  • Indecision is a self-imposed prison.
  • Indecision is the enemy of invention.

SpontaneityIn fact, indecision cripples invention.  It cripples marriage proposals, cripples IPO’s, cripples education, cripples war. And, peace.

The very nature of indecisiveness stunts the very nature.

Where would we be if Mother Nature couldn’t make up her mind? Would an apple tree become a river? Would an ant be dissatisfied with being an ant? Would an albatross wish it were a hummingbird? Would a sunflower decide to stay in bed? If Mother Nature waffled and just couldn’t make the definitive decision that everything in nature has its predetermined role to play, where would we be?

Where would we be if we always straddled the fence between yes and no?

Where would we be if we couldn’t decide between this and that? Up or down? In or out? Now or later?

Where would we be if a life or death decision was impossible to make? Dead?

Is that when we cease to be?

Free will is the mother of indecision. Without free will there’s no decision to make. Whatever is, is.

But here's the good news: free will is what gives us choice.

  • Choice is the decision.
  • Choice is the power to attract the life we want.
  • Choice is the power to transform.
  • Choice is awareness and being in the now.
  • Choice is freedom.
  • Choice is a friend of spontaneity.
  • Choice is a friend to the artist.
  • Choice is the peace of mind of the parent.
  • Choice nurtures fruition.
  • Choice is the lover of invention.

 Choice doesn’t have to be forever. It’s just right now. It gets us out of the vast and chaotic place called indecision.

Choice kicks indecision’s ass.

Choice is the thing. Just make one.
